Adjacent to UMass Amherst is the First Baptist Church. Like a majority of buildings on the nearby campus, the church dates to the mid-century, specifically 1962. The design is typical for many suburban style protestant churches of the era, entered from the parking area. It also features a blind brick wall facing the street with decoration in a center column of concrete (here in the form of cross shapes). The sides of the sanctuary are lined with windows, although not stained glass.
The entrance has a large flat overhang and connects both the church in the front as well as educational and other buildings behind. The rear is built on a slope and leads down to a large parking area.
